Blunt cut waves

If you have long or medium-length hair and need a style that is polished enough to go with formal attire, but laid back enough for happy hour, we suggest you try this sleek, wavy hairstyle. It looks great with blunt ends but works really well with layers, too.

To find out how to get the look, just follow the tutorial below.

How to style it

Step 1
Starting with clean, damp hair, apply Advanced Hairstyle BLOW DRY IT Quick Dry Primer Spray, then blow-dry your mane completely. The spray reacts with the heat to speed up the drying process, giving you an excuse to press that snooze button one more time...

Step 2
Once dried, part your hair deep on one side, then brush it through to fix the part in place.

Step 3
Mist your hair with Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Iron Straight Heat Spray, then use a medium-barrel curling iron to create loose curls through the mid-lengths and ends.

Top tip - To make the curls last, pool each one in your hand when it comes off the iron, spray it with Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Fine Control Hairspray, then clip it up to cool.

Step 4
Gently brush the curls through to unify them into smooth waves, then mist your hair all over with Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Strand Smoother Serum Spray to add shine and keep flyaways at bay.

Step 5
Tuck your hair firmly behind your ears - you can use bobby pins to make it stay put - then mist with hairspray to finish.
